1. Fully Funded PhD Position in Metasurfaces on Fiber Tip Implementation

Summary of PhD Program:

The MEMORY project addresses the key question of how one can pack data channels in optical transmission links with a density that scales orders of magnitude higher than current optical fibers. It is an increasingly pressing issue due to the rise in demand for digitalization. The most spatially dense way of packing data channels is achieved by exploiting the properties of guided light in optical fibers. Known as optical spatial modes, they are specific stable spatial distributions of light. Multiple such spatial distributions can exist simultaneously in the optical fiber and act as parallel data channels to increase the transmission capacity substantially. The mode multiplexer is essential in such systems, enabling orders of magnitude increase in transmission capacity.

7. Fully Funded PhD Position in Focused Simulations of Electronic Structure in Composite Phases

Summary of PhD Program:

In the FESCOP project – funded for a 4-year period under the Sapere Aude program from the Independent Research Fund Denmark – we will work towards devising new computational protocols for substantially reducing existing requirements with respect to the extent of simulation clusters in condensed phases. In gas phase, only the electronic structure of a molecule itself becomes distorted whenever incoming radiation promotes transitions between electronic ground and excited states. However, in a structured environment like a solution or a protein, this distortion will become delocalized amongst the constituents of the surrounding medium as well, resulting in a need for extended clusters when sampling transition properties to assure proper computational convergence.

10.
Fully Funded PhD Position in Physical Chemistry and Bioscience 

Summary of PhD Program:

We will study the behaviour of enzymes at gas-liquid interfaces (bubbles). Bubbles are frequently encountered in reactors – here, enzymes get into direct contact with gas bubbles when for instance substrate gases such as oxygen are pumped into reactors. Adsorption of an enzyme to gas-liquid interfaces can cause unfolding of the enzyme and hence, losing its function. We shall employ computational simulation techniques to study the behaviour of enzymes at a gas-liquid interface by monitoring changes in structural and dynamic enzyme properties upon adsorption at for instance bubbles of different size and composition.

21. Fully Funded PhD Position in Mathematical Modelling of Intumescent Coatings

Summary of PhD Program:

Intumescent coatings are used to thermally insulate load-bearing steel structures in the event of a fire. The thermal insulation is hereby achieved by the expansion and foaming of the coating at elevated temperatures and the formation of a complex multi-cellular porous char structure. The performance of such coatings is commonly evaluated by heating them inside a furnace with a temperature-time pre-defined in international standards. One of the significant challenges in this field is the mathematical model and its experimental validation under standardized fires. Conductive, convective, and radiative heat affect to the intumescent coating. The way the coating insulates against these three mechanisms highly depend on the coatings’ expansion and the porous structure. Usually, the heat transfer models proposed in literature do not focus on the morphology of the intumescent char.

23. Fully Funded PhD Position in Fisheries Technology

Summary of PhD Program:

Towed fishing gears, especially demersal trawls, typically have substantial interactions with the seafloor, which leads to increased fuel consumption and release of sequestered carbon from the seabed. Moreover, they are responsible for physical impacts that can shape the habitat and cause substantial mortalities of benthic organisms. At a local level these can threaten the sustainability of a fishery, and globally they can contribute to climate change. Hence, to promote the environmental and economic sustainability of towed demersal fisheries, technical solutions that reduce the physical impacts of these gears must be developed.

26. Fully Funded PhD Position in Ultrafast Lasers and Frequency Comb 

Summary of PhD Program:

The optical frequency comb has been a key enabling technique in photonics. It simultaneously combines ultra-broad optical bandwidth, and extreme resolutions in both time and frequency. These remarkable properties led to the Nobel Prize being awarded in 2005 for comb-enabled precision spectroscopy. Instead of a single comb, we will explore dual-comb lasers to reach the targeted measurement parameters. A major challenge for dual-comb systems is overcoming the high complexity of traditional approaches using a pair of electronically locked modelocked lasers. The project will investigate single-cavity solutions to overcome such issues. While doing so, we will further investigate the limits of such a technology as well.

31. Fully Funded PhD Position in solid state electrochemical TEM 

Summary of PhD Program:

P2X is becoming a key technology in green energy infrastructures, and its core is electrolysis. The most efficient electrolysis technology is solid oxide electrolysis (SOEC), but the primary concern for implementing SOEC on a large scale is the loss of efficiency caused by cell degradation. The most detrimental degradation occurs as nano-structural changes in the Ni-containing electrode, but the mechanisms are not fully understood. The goal of the project is for the first time to map particle Ni rounding and wetting as function of temperature, gas composition, and applied electrical potential. The results will bring the SOEC technology ahead by determining thresholds for operating parameters where detrimental nanoscale degradation can be avoided.
